HACCP-Certification | Bureau Veritas
EU hygiene standard for the food industry
There is probably no other industry in which hygiene standards play such an elementary role as in the food industry. Whether your company produces, processes or transports food - the avoidance of health risks always has top priority in daily business.
The concept of hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) is based on the EU regulation for food safety and has been a mandatory standard for all food imported into the European Union or traded internally since 2006. The standard aims to systematically identify all factors that are potentially hazardous to the health of consumers and to minimise the associated risks.
